Monday, the Associated Press released its media polls and it looks like our proprietary algorithm that produces our rankings did a pretty nice job when compared to the opinion poll.

Allen, ranked No. 2 in our national rankings, is the top team in Class 6A, while Aledo, ranked No. 41 in our Preseason 100, is the top pick in 5A.
